We visited to attend the 6.30 pm service. A warm welcome... mostly English in congregation. The history of this church is part of Zermatt's history and so worthwhile to take time to see it

I wandered into this lovely church during my recent weekend stay in Zermatt. This church is simple and elegant with lovely wall paintings and decor. A nice little retreat from the Zermatt shops and restaurants nearby.

This pretty spired church just above the main street, just on from the Romantica Hotel, tells a bigger story than might first strike you. Built at the turn of the previous century with funds raised by the Alpine Club, St.Peter's is a foundation stone in...More
